Sharing Of Tour Guide For Taroko National Park Tour In Taiwan

Hey people,

I would be in Taipei from 12 May to 16 May and would be hiring a cab driver cum tour guide to bring us around Taroko National Park (Pickup point from Hualien station).
There are only 2 of us and we are looking for people who are interested to share the cab with us to share costs. (Tentatively on 15 May but can be changed to accommodate each other's itineraries)

If you are interested, please let me know asap as I would flying off in 2 weeks time.
Thanks!

Fu Hang Dou Jiang (阜杭豆漿) serving traditional Taiwanese breakfast is about one MRT station stop away.
On Hang Zhou South Street (杭州南路) across from the Shandao MRT. Use Exit 5 Shangdao Temple MRT Station.Up the Stairways in the Market bldg to your right.
http://myinnerfatty.blogspot.com/200...-hang-dou.html
you can ask the Reception for the nearest joint close to the Hotel.
